About the rules of Three Friends Chinese Chess:

1. Whoever is first to checkmate one of the others  gains control of that player's forces. 

2. Add Flag and Fire. 

Flags are put on the NW and NE corners of the every palace.

Other triangle zone in every conrer are named Mountain and City.  Cannon is not allowed to pass this zone.
